What are your thoughts on the architectural style portrayed in the Studio Ghibli animations? I've always found Howl's moving castle chaotic yet fascinating at the same time :)

Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli’s architectural creations are the foundations of the worlds where their stories take place and just like their stories they tend to be unique, a bit surreal, and take inspiration from many different sources. Howl’s Moving Castle is a chaotic creation, but it is that way on purpose to serve the story and it does not represent Studio Ghibli’s sensitivities. 

Here are some of my favorite architectural creations from Studio Ghibli:

Hello, what are two major projects for Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, and what makes him so special in architecture as opposed to other architects (in the use of materials or form of buildings etc)?


I will not rob you of the opportunity of discover Mies the work and legacy of one of the most important architects in the last century. If this did not sound so much like homework I would go on and on, but because it does, I would tell you to start your research by visiting the Mies van der Rohe Society website or one of our many previous posts about Mies (also check out 20 Things You Didn’t Know About Mies van der Rohe at ArchDaily).

I was thinking about your post and I have a suggestion. Maybe post something on politics and Architecture/Design? There is always a close connection but personally I was only exposed to these connections when I started studying Architecture. I think that ppl r here for aesthetics+architecture. Design in general has a political side but not everyone understands this or are exposed to that fact. even if they know 1 form of design is political, it may not translate that other forms can be too

ARCHatlas is political in many ways, many probably go unnoticed. 

We make sure to post works from a diverse pool because in all honesty no one has a monopoly on good architecture. Architecture is one of the things that unify us as a race, even when it has been used to divide us.

We try to post informative articles regarding the state of our cities, education and provide resources for anyone and everyone to learn more about architecture.

We also feature a lot of photography that allows us to see parts of the world we might not have been able to experience otherwise. I truly believe the more you learn about how others live around the world the more you embrace the differences that make us great. In this case the cliche is true: a picture is worth a thousand words.

Architecture is always political, in many small and big ways. We do seem to have a renewed call for action, regardless of the hate received for something so simple as the post For the Record. This is something I truly believe in and to ignore it would be to go against who I am.
